1. Permitted Uses of the Service
2. Creating an Account
If you create an account on our Service, the following terms apply: (i) You may only create and hold one account that you are solely responsible for managing; (ii) You may only create, accept, and share Content on the Service for your own use and benefit and sharing with End Users from your personal contacts; (iii) You may only share Content with End Users from your own personal contacts; (iv) You must safeguard your password and supervise the use of your account, and understand and agree that you are responsible for your own use and the use of your account by anyone you allow to access it; (v) With respect to information you submit to the Service, all such information is accurate, true, current and complete; and (vi) Your account is non-transferrable and may not be sold, combined or otherwise shared with any other person.
If you violate any of these limitations we may terminate your account and, without limitation, you may forfeit any pending or unredeemed offers in your account.
3. Terms of the Content
Content created, accepted and shared through our Service as a SpeakEasy account holder are specific offers from participating Merchants. The offers in Content are redeemable by End Users for certain discounts or rebates on goods or services offered by the Merchant identified in the specific offer. The Merchant agrees that it is solely responsible for honoring and fulfilling any offer in the Content. The Merchant is the party making the offer and is fully responsible for fulfilling all obligations created by the Content and for any and all injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, liabilities and costs (“Liabilities”) any party may suffer, directly or indirectly, in full or in part, related to the use or redemption of (or the inability to use or redeem) an offer included in any Content. Each Agent and End User hereby waives and releases SpeakEasy and its subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, employees and agents from any Liabilities arising from or related to any act or omission of a Merchant in connection with your use of or an End User's inability to use any Content or the goods/services associated with such Content.
SpeakEasy is merely a platform that facilitates the communication of certain Content from Merchants to Agents, and each Merchant is the sole issuer of its Content. SpeakEasy cannot control whether a Merchant will honor offers in every instance, and accordingly cannot guarantee or be responsible for any claims arising out of a Merchant’s refusal to honor or fulfill an offer included in any Content. If a Merchant refuses to honor any offer, SpeakEasy is not responsible for that Merchant’s conduct, and SpeakEasy will not refund or pay any amount lost due to the Merchant not honoring the offer.
4. Your Conduct on the Service
The Service may contain certain features that allow for Users to interact with each other via a “chat” function. All information, data, text, software, graphics, commentary, video, messages, or any other materials submitted by using the Service’s “chat” functions (collectively, “Data”), is the sole responsibility of the User from whom such Data originated. You are wholly responsible for all Data downloaded, uploaded or otherwise transmitted via any of the Services by you. SpeakEasy will not monitor or access any Data, provided that SpeakEasy may have access to Data solely as necessary to address bugs or make improvements to the Service. SpeakEasy hereby disclaims, and you hereby release SpeakEasy from, all Liabilities related to any Data provided by you or any User, including but not limited to the loss of, or inability to access, any Data. We will fully cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating suspected lawbreakers, including complying with court orders or lawful requests or demands to preserve or produce Data pursuant to applicable local, state or federal laws. Any Data delivered by you or to you using the Service is subject to preservation and/or production by us upon such lawful requests.
SpeakEasy is designed to facilitate the communication of Content from Merchants to Agents and allow Agents to personalize messages to selected End Users. Agents decide whether or not to share any certain Content with their selected End Users. ANY USERS WHO DECIDE TO SHARE CONTENT VIA SMS TEXT MESSAGE REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT EACH PERSON SENT CONTENT VIA SMS TEXT MESSAGE HAVE PREVIOUSLY CONSENTED TO RECEIVE SMS TEXT MESSAGES FROM THE USER.
Any text messages sent and/or received are subject to standard text messaging rates. Additionally, text messages sent and/or received count towards a monthly quota as any other messages do. Any User, whether sending or receiving text messages, should be aware that standard text messaging rates may apply. Text messaging rates can normally be found by asking your provider.
